Seldom comes a love story which is a scientific fantasy and cinematically this beautiful. If you liked 'Another Earth' then you are bound to love this one as well. Jim Sturgess leaves his mark and gives another strong performance after 'One Day'. Dunst gave a good performance comparable to her role in 'Wimbledon'. Timothy Spall was excellent as always. The point of excitement for me is that imaginary science in fantasies like this one is getting better and better. It is beautiful that author redefines the rules of gravity in both world and follows it up nicely. I know that many science geeks would find a lot of flaws for argument, but in my opinion, it is a very apt movie for the popular cinema.
